Présentation de l'éditeur

The British Isles have long been seen as a place of mystery & magic. For many thousands of years successive waves of invaders each brought their own gods & goddesses with them, often assimilating the beliefs of the tribes they conquered. The Celtic races merged with the indigenous people, in turn conquered by the Romans, who brought with them deities from all over the Roman Empire including Greece & Egypt. After them came the Saxons & other Germanic tribes, further adding to the rich tapestry that forms part of our spiritual heritage today.
The Isles of the Many Gods brings together, for the first time, information on the worship of these deities in Britain, in an easy to use A-Z. It includes both the native & immigrant gods & goddesses, from well known gods like Apollo, Brigit, Freya, Herne, Isis, Mars & Woden to lesser known ones like Abandinus, Arianrhod, Genii Cucullati, Midir, Vitiris & the Wheel God.
There are more than 240 entries providing information regarding the evidence of their worship in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland & the Isle of Man. Drawing from archaeology, architecture, art, artefacts, currency, place-names & literature thereby providing an excellent reference work for those interested in the spiritual beliefs of our ancestors.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Quick Introductory Primer in Mythology 27 avril 2012
Par H. Tebo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"The Isles of the Many Gods" takes on the Herculean task of identifying members of the British, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, Manx, and 'associated' pantheons of the British Isles present up until the medieval area. Fractured records, limited archaeological information, and few preserved stories from specific areas makes this a difficult subject at the best of times.

This book tackles the job well for an introductory work supported by primary sources, like the Welsh triads and the famous Irish cycles, but comes up woefully short in other areas. I use these resources extensively in my historical and classical writing on Celtic Britain and Ireland, and the book won't be on the well-used corner of my Kindle shelf.

Its strong points:
- A broad overview without preference towards one specific pantheon. Books often get tied up with the Irish traditions because they are the best documented, but lack on the others.
- Geographical references. Useful information on where the god in question was worshipped including primary shrines. Also, a boon, noting whether the deity in question was native. Many brought by the Roman legions came from as far afield as Persia or Africa.
- Historical overview that illustrates some of the problems, like deities attested only from inscriptions. We have a name and know nothing else for some of these.
- Quick, easy read.
- Clear writing style that doesn't become too academic or dry.
- Lesser known entries included. Especially nice for local figures who might not be otherwise known.
- Non-Arthurian links! Too many times, the Arthurian cycle gets absorbed into the deific books, but not here.

Weak points:
- Short, comparatively. This is not the most comprehensive record that notes every instance where individuals were found.
- Entries are not particularly long and in-depth.
- Sources are predominantly Roman and Irish. The front matter explains the difficulty in determining Scottish or Manx deities, and the relatively poor attribution to Welsh-speaking cultures that dominated northern Britain. I would have liked to see more done with the available material and links.
- Slim details about actual deific traditions and cults.
- Deific overlap. Certain gods who may be the same figure under multiple names, or associated with one another (Lugus, Lugh, etc.) aren't clarified consistently.

I was hoping for a bit deeper reference to Brythonic or Goidelic deities than I got from this. It's a nice jumping off point for someone new to folklore or out to learn a few details, but less helpful as a writer's resource or a historian/anthropologist's reference than other excellent publications.

Wow, what a fantastic book!

I'm one of those people who, when doing research, hates to be surrounded by tons of different books searching through pages of useless info to find that 1 page that holds the information I'm looking for.

David and Sorita have done all the hard work for you here, a book that contains information on the Gods and Goddesses that were worshiped in Britain. Over 240 entries, this is a fantastic reference book.

Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good reference book 12 avril 2014
Par Golden Egg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
It is interesting Paganism was alive and well for so long in the British Isles up until the Middle Ages. Even the King Arthur and Robin Hood stories are strong in Pagan symbolism. The Christians finally did win out and it takes researchers like Mr Rankine and Ms D'Este to compile them in this nice book.

The names and origins of the Gods and Goddesses are given along with a few myths. This is not a book of mythology and the stories but the deities worshiped and brought in from the Romans and other peoples who invaded or settled the lands.

Celtic, Welsh, Irish, Roman and Egyptian names pop up all over the place along with Teutonic deities.

The names and other names known are listed as well as the time of approximate worship are given.

This book is a good starting point for those wanting to learn about beliefs in the British Isles.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Isle of Many Gods 3 mars 2014
Par Merissa (Archaeolibrarian) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This book is by far one of the best and most intensely researched that I have read. It doesn't just stick with Gods from the British Isles but also those that moved here via the Romans, Vikings etc. If they were worshipped in the UK, then there is a really good chance that they will be listed in this comprehensive book.

One thing that I loved about this book was the authors' explanation at the start of the book as to who was included and why. The table of contents and the links included in this kindle version work like a dream and I was able to find and read the deity I wanted to very simply, as well as reading through the introductions etc.

I have to add that I got this book whilst it was on promotion on Amazon for £0.00. I will definitely be keeping this book to refer back to again and again but at the price quoted above, I would still have got it and have been very happy with a quality book at an unbelievable good value for money price.

A great read on the confusing history and stories of the Celtic gods. Information is bountiful, and details, such as area of worship and symbols, are added and explained. Family trees are added as well. Although not for someone new to this fierce pantheon, the information is invaluable.
